NEW DELHI: With Delhi University set to issue the 3rd allocation merit list on November 10, 20,629 candidates have once more opted for an upgrade. As the university is also allowing students who missed registering through mid-entry, 487 have opted for it.
After the accomplishment of the 2nd allocation round, DU gives the option of mid-entry for the candidates who couldn’t register during the first or the second phase of Common Seats Allocation System. Candidates can exercise the upgrade and mid-entry option till 5pm on November 7.
So far, almost 64,000 seats of the total 70,000 seats in the university have been already filled. “As there are limited seats left, very few will be able to get an upgrade,” said an official.
In the 1st allocation, 59,100 candidates had taken admission and 15,550 in the 2nd round. While 9,626 candidates upgraded their seats after the 1st allocation, 3,806 were fresh admissions.
